The Good Asian is a Noir Mystery Exploring Race
Bestselling Infidel writer Pornsak Pichetshote will join fan-favorite artist Alexandre Tefenkgi for an all-new miniseries in The Good Asian. This nine-issue noir mystery will launch from Image Comics in May 2021.
Similar to the lauded series Infidel, this meticulously researched new series from Pichetshote and Tefenkgi explores race through a genre lens and is scheduled to hit shelves in time for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
The Good Asian introduces readers to main character Edison Hark—a haunted, self-loathing Chinese-American detective—on the trail of a killer in 1936 Chinatown. The Good Asian is Chinatown noir starring the generation of Americans to come of age under America’s first immigration ban—the Chinese Exclusion Act—as they’re besieged by rampant murders, abusive police, and a world that seemingly never changes.
The Good Asian #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 5.
